My self-summary
Funny human. Dog person. Santa Monica native. Venice dweller. Arizona alum. ESFP/unicorn (says the internet). Soft spot for women who prefer concerts/reefer/sandwiches to clubs/bottle service/going home smelling like a sweaty doorknob.

Half outdoorsman, half indoorsman, 100% doorsman.
What I’m doing with my life
Renewing affection for my hometown. Pausing in the middle of intersections when something visually pleases me. Writing jokes for greeting cards. Driving for Lyft, which I enjoy more than I ever could've imagined. Coffee hunting on the beach every morning. Satiating an oral fixation.
I’m really good at
Finding humor in every situation. Especially the bad ones.

Full-scale/miniature versions of golf/tennis.
Identifying Beatles songs in the first 5 seconds.
Shooting pool.
Always leaving a note.
Getting stoned and eating all the _______________ .
Always knowing which way is north. Except in parking structures.
Or Brooklyn.

Capturing some moments, making fun of others. Instagram/Twitter: @themikewhite (No abs or selfies, just better photography & jokes than most.)
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes. Walk. Penmanship. What I'm eating, the speed with which I'm doing so. That I look like that guy that was on that show with that guy and all those other guys. (I was that guy.) The fuzzy pink mustache on my car.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
1. Documentary supplies: camera, pen, paper (iPhone)
2. Good company
3. Good music
4. Good coffee
5. Good herb
6. The open road
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Perfecting jokes. Which new state I'll visit next. The next LP I have to get down to. Agonizing over adjectives and alliterations. San Francisco. What's for lunch. My last great golf shot. My next tattoo.

The outrageously good fortune of being incarnated as a functional, healthy human being from a loving Southern California family.

Dogs. Specifically pugs and bulldogs. Just love those little mutants.
On a typical Friday night I am
With people I love, in a place I love, exercising all five senses as best I can.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm by all means an equal opportunity dater, but Asian women have an upper hand lately. Richard Simmons once saved my life. I've been to Delaware.
You should message me if
You're searching for happiness or comfort in a partner, not a label. If that's in a relationship, so be it. If that's over a piece of pie, we could be worse off. If that's tripping our faces off and making out through a show, bring it.

You're ready to not be on this site any more.

You're a good communicator. You're accountable. You clean up after yourself. (You're an adult.)

You're impulsive, yet rational. You prefer seeing and savoring where things are going, not agonizing over where they might lead.

You'd cut your hair short or get a tattoo. Not that you have or do currently, but you would. Because you could.

You've considered San Francisco as a potential home or fancy yourself open to the notion.

You've made it through this entire profile and can muster a response longer than 20 words and deeper than "Hey, I like coffee too." (That was copied and pasted.)

You're on the West side, or at least spend a decent chunk of your time here.

You can take a compliment without letting it go to your head, hike without being eaten by wolves, road trip without getting antsy, and appreciate a good pun. You're as capable of returning affection and honesty as you are welcoming it. You aren't afraid of love.

You've actually enjoyed reading my profile, maybe even chuckled once or twice.

You're a sports fan, or willing to learn. You're as happy grabbing a few pitchers for a game or tailgating as you are with a fancy dinner or wine tasting.

You're 420-ready, drink within reason, and probably eat meat. (Nothing against vegans/vegetarians or dating them, but I really, truly, sincerely, honestly, frankly and wholeheartedly enjoy eating all of Mother Nature's creatures. It's the circle of life, and we shouldn't take for granted the fact that our species has literally fought its way out of the food chain.) You might dabble in the harder stuff from time to time.

If smoking a joint and fooling around in bed before walking to brunch on the beach sounds like a decent Sunday morning.

You'll drive from A to E instead of flying so you can stop at B, C, and D. (Provided time isn't a factor.)

You're sweet. You either think of yourself as or aspire to be a good person. (Not nearly enough emphasis on this in the world today.)

You're looking for someone to call home.
The two of us
